Why data is important in making things better for patients

Catherine Pollard  | 

“Clinicians are holding people's lives in their hands, and so for me data is about making sure they have all the information they need about where an individual comes from, their living circumstances and their family history, whilst also having the benefit of what clinical best practise will tell you to do or some of the large pattern analysis you can only do in very large populations.”

In this week's episode of The G Word, Chris Wigley is joined by Catherine Pollard, NHSX Director of Tech Policy and Curator of One Health Tech Cambridge Hub.

They discuss NHSX, involving patient groups in decision making and digital development in health and social care. The also talk about One Health Tech Cambridge and equality and diversity in health innovation.
